Here is the system I am running:

Windows XP Home Edition
Version 2002
Service pack 3

Earlier today I noticed that my Norton Internet Security was not loading on start-up so I tried to load it manually, which did not work. I then tried to load Ad-Aware and Spybot repectively and neither of those worked either.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me resolve this issue.
